to discuss a possible drawdown with u.s. secretary general. for now, though the fighting continues. israeli air strikes killed nearly 40 people today, groups in gaza respondented by shooting nearly 100 rockets in israel. and on the israeli side of the border things appeared remarkably calm today. this picture has caused a stir online. it shows israelis watching passively as in-coming missiles sail over head. so why to israelis feel so comfortable out in the open as missiles fly above them? because of something called the iron dome. it's a defense system that uses radar to detect in-coming rockets and determine where they will land. if it is headed towards a populated area the gunner shoots the missile out of the sky. it is particularly good at detecting the smaller, older rockets that the palestinians use. iron dome has had an incredible 85% successful rate against the 300 rockets the palestinians have fired. the gulf missiles intercepted less than 10% of their target. iron dome has always made a huge difference. as of today, israel has only reported three deaths. in

, folks, and he's not afraid to use it. here is representative jim chicago burn elaborate on the ground that theme today. >> us democrats ran with the president on this plan of his and we received democrats almost a million more votes than our republican friends did in this past election. so we think the time for posturing is over. >> jennifer: in fact, the president's plan itself demonstrates that he knows that he has a mandate. and believe it or not that large wish list is actually a gift to the republicans. why? because it expand the negotiating table so that the republicans can respond by rejecting pieces of it. the rejection of those pieces is like a gift to them. so how did speaker boehner respond? how did he react to that plan? he didn't thank the president that's for sure. >> first despite the claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have yet to get serious about real spending codes. and secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white hou

differences melt away and we focus on what binds us together and that we, as americans, are going to stand with each other in their hour of need. >> jennifer: in fact, there is new political coalitions emerging following the storm. leaders like governor andrew cuomo of new york, new york city mayor michael bloomberg have both called for federal action on climate change to deal with increasingly disastrous weather events. yesterday, the president weighed in as well saying that while he believes climate change is real and human made, he said taking action will require political will on both sides of the aisle. >> obama: i don't know the what what -- what either democrats or republicanss are prepared to do at this point.ú there is no doubt for us to take on climate change in a serious way would involve making some tough political choices. >> jennifer: now in his first term, of course, the president did take steps to reduce harmful emissions including raising fuel efficiency standards for vehicles and providing capital to clean

people in the u.s. and caused billions of dollars of damage. unless you live in one of the affected areas you probably think things are back to norm. but that's because the media is barely cleaning up the cleanup efforts. in new york city, they're living in third world conditions, raw sewage continues to flow into water ways. thousands still have no power and direct subway service is not expected to return into the middle of next year. >> we were up to five feet of water. it was not water but it was all cesspool so it was sewage water. >> how much can a body tank. >> blankets, two socks three sweaters and gloves. >> they have got garbage they're cleaning in other areas and putting it on the beach here, yet we have still have garbage here. >> it's the way life is. >> jennifer: thousands of volunteers have flocked to the rockaways to help with the cleanup efforts tonight coming from new york, dr. sabaya, welcome to the war room. >> i'm having difficulty hearing you. >> jennifer: i can hear you, just a little bit faint. >> a little bit faint. hopefully they can turn up your microphone becaus

needs to get 30-35 republican votes and then the democrats can pay us the rest of it, if it's a deal that much to the democratic's liking that he only needs to shave off you know, three dozen republicans. that would be a deal weighted toward the democrats. will the republicans then totally resist? you know, nobody's ever gone broke underestimating republican obstructionism. >> that's for sure. is a listen to you though, as i listen to you the grand bargain was on the table, the president apparently willing to do it earlier this year, and now it's, you know, now he's won a more convincing election. does he to have give away as much as he was going to give away then when he was at the table with the republicans earlier? >> well, i don't know specifically what was in that give away, but he didn't get the tax revenue he wanted then which is why he and boehner walked away from the deal. if he gets significant or enough tax revenue, then i think he's willing to deal. i suspect he's going to do something that his base isn't going to be entirely happy with, but you know that's the old adage

[ cheers ] >> but it wasn't such a good night for the republicans who can't seem to get it. poor things. they have got their blinders on. they have got their feet in cement. they are still refusing to acknowledge that the world has evolved; that their universe of while maleness deficit obsession, zero tax pledges, and their 20th century love affair with trickle down is no more. the world has changed, the american people have grown. minorities are occupying a larger and larger sector of the government. women have been able to vote for a while now. people understand when they have been given the shaft, and yet the republicans have their fingers firmly inserted in their ears, eyes closed granting nah, nah, nah, nah, because what they really believe is they can make up for the changing demograp
